I have a 2002 explorer. The instrument cluster fuse keeps blowing, I took the truck into Ford and all they did was replace the fuse. The tech said the fuse would keep blowing. Now the the fuse blows as soon as the truck turns on with a new fuse. The rear running lights have gone out now. the hazard and brake lights are working. A strange bell/ring occurs every so often and the rear locks keep locking won their own.

Brake light fuse keeps blowing Noticed our brake ligths were not working...checked the fuses under the dash and they were fine...checked under the hood and found one blown...replaced it and the brake lights worked fine for about1/2hr...then blew the fuse again...possibly either just before or just as we were backing up.... thanks for the help

I am looking for a wiring diagram for a 2004 Isuzu Rodeo. The fuse keeps blowing every time the brakes are applied, meaning I have no brake lights, emergency flashers or turn signals. recently my son, who owns the Rodeo reported that it was hard to shift out of Park. He used both hands, applied force and finally got the shift lever to move. Ever since the fuse blows when the brakes are applied. I wonder if he broke the safety device in the shift linkage that actuates only when the brakes are app
